HIS MONTH'S MOVIE SELECTION
shows a striking lack of film-
noir fare. What's going on?
Where's the gratuitous violence?
Where are the likable bad guys
with oddball fetishes and even more
oddball nicknames? Oh, that's right:
It's a Disney sort of month. Buck up,
though. Maybe at the end of Toy Story,
Woody will pump Buzz with semiauto-
matic fire (Closing remark: "That's all I
have to say about that.").
What if the presi-
dent were hooking up at
the White House? Legit-
imately, that is. Michael
Douglas plays a wid-
owed president who starts dating an environmental
lobbyist (Annette Bening, Love Affair). Pretty bad
when your lovers' tiffs are the top story on the 6
When Nature Calls
Riddle me this: How do they churn the sequels
out so fast? The dumb gets still dumber as Jim Car-
rey returns as that friend to the furry, feathered and
flippered. This time he's needed in Africa, where he
has to track down the sacred Shikaka (we don't
know what it is, either) to prevent tribal war.
Time to count our
lessings. Claudia Lar-
son (Holly Hunter, The
Piano) feels particularly blessed: She just got fired;
she's sick; she's flying to see her weird family; and
her daughter (Claire Danes, TV's My So-Called
Life) is planning to lose her virginity while she's
gone. Pass the stuffing.
The Journey of
August King, a handsome white mountain
man played by Jason Patric (Rush), goes to the
market for supplies and comes back with a beauti-
ful black girl. Sounds like mountain fever. Except
it's pre-Civil War North Carolina, she's a run-
away slave and hunters are now looking to check-
mate them both.
It's been awhile
since we've seen a good
old-fashioned train rob-
bery. What? White men
can't rob trains? How
about re-pairing that wacky duo, Woody Harrelson
and Wesley Snipes? They play brothers (foster) and
New York transit cops who go underground to rob
Before the Disney-
ization of the casinos,
Las Vegas was down and
dirty - a place where
men were men, Elvis
was King, the bars were
seedy and the dancers were sleazy. Robert De Niro
plays Ace, a greedy gambler. Joe Pesci plays his part-
ner. Sharon Stone plays Ginger, the sexpot and
Ace's love interest.
Waiting to Exhale
20th Century Fox
You can stop holding your breath. Another
women's movie - just what you've been waiting
for - is out. These four women aren't shooting
men and taking off on a cross-country jaunt. But
maybe they should be. Whitney Houston, Angela
Bassett and Gregory Hines star. Breathtaking.

Life is like a box of toys. Tom Hanks is the voice
of Woody, a cowhoy doll who maintains order in
his owner Andy's room - until Buzz Lightyear, a
high-fallutin' space action figure (voice by Tim
Allen, TV's Home Improvement), moves in. Word is
that the animation is anamazing.
Never say never.
lucky number - 007-
finally came up. This
time, Pierce Brosnan is
Bond. James Bond. He
goes to Russia. Former
Soviet Union Russia.
And there are girls. Sexy girls. (Famke Janssen and
Izabella Scorupco play the latest Bond chicks.)
Nick of Time
Wait a second. John-
ny Depp - a.k.a. Don
Juan - a daddy? Yup.
He plays a mild-man-
nered accountant whose
daughter is kidnapped.
He's forced to assassi-
nate California's governor (Look out, Pete!) or his
daughter will die. Christopher Walken (The
Prophecy) plays one of the kidnappers.

an extensive list of safety features (dual air bags, anti-lock brakes, etc.) and a neat sticker price
starting at around $11,000: So when you take into consideration style, dependability and value,
you won't find a car as fun and as sensible as Cavalier. That's why we call it a Genuine Chevrolet.
